What Where Who

What do you do
When you’ve cried so much
That the tears won’t come

Where do you go
When the diagnosis
Is more than you can bear

Who will hear
When you scream out
In the middle of the night

What do you do
When the still small voice
Seems miles away

Where do you go
When life feels
Like it’s out of control

Who will be there
When everything and everyone
Falls away to nothingness

Holli’s Notes: I wrote this after facing a very painful event in my life and feeling like there was nothing to do except cry out to Jesus.
